Jacksonville, FL — A woman is shot in both of her legs by her boyfriend in a bizarre hunting accident. Police say he was trying to shoot a hog.
52 year-old Lisa Simmons of Brandon was shot Saturday night in western Flagler County. She’s in serious condition at Halifax Medical Center after undergoing surgery.
Police say 52 year-old Steve Egan thought he was shooting at a hog outside the couple’s tent. Police say Egan thought he hit the animal but was unable to locate it when he left the tent.
When he heard a noise in the woods, Egan shot at what he thought was the hog.
Instead, Simmons was struck with the .30 caliber rifle bullet, traveling through both of her upper legs.
